Our Team

Barry Andrewartha - Publisher

Barry's interest in diving began back in 1952 when as an 11 year old he took up underwater spearfishing. Four years later he purchased his first scuba unit, a British made Sea Lion unit, and a German made Robot 35mm underwater camera. As a dedicated diver he launched Sportdiving Magazine (then called Skindiving in Australia) back in 1969 and together with his wife and business partner launched Dive Log back in 1987. In 1974 he was the driving force behind Australia's first Underwater Congress Oceans '74 which continued on till 1986, then the "Nights of Adventure" and in 2012 the Blue on Tour event.
Barry has dived all around the world and is still an active diver and photographer.
